Thermodynamics 2nd Law
posted by Nicole on .
The 2nd law of thermodynamics states that “in any spontaneous process, the total entropy of the universe always increases”. Yet in biological systems there are processes where there is a decrease in entropy during a reaction. Give an example of a biological process where entropy decreases (words are fine, specific reactions are not necessary). Then explain how these processes do not violate the 2nd law of thermodynamics.
